The RG7CT is a seven-string RG series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1999. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Prestige line.

The RG7CT features a mahogany body with a 4mm thick AAA flame maple top bolted to a maple Wizard 7 neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with offset abalone dot position markers. Components include a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge, dual DiMarzio humbucking pickups and Gotoh tuning machines. The tremolo and control cavity covers have a tortoiseshell color.

The RG7CST is a somewhat similar J Custom model with piezo pickups.

The RG7CT was produced in limited numbers of perhaps as few as 24 units and was discontinued after 2000.
